Stuffed Bell Peppers

You know how you’ve had an idea stuck in your head for weeks, but you’re too busy to make time? That was me. I wanted to make stuffed bell peppers for a while now.
Unfortunately, I got around it a little too late, having to discard a yellow bell pepper thanks to my cooking procrastinating.
I salvaged the two left (red and green) with a yummy blend of black rice, tempeh, and walnut cream sauce. And not only did I accomplish my original thought, I filmed parts of my process (rather comically). Please watch the YouTube video here and laugh at my mistakes.
